Courage Is the Foundation – Wisdom Unplugged

The Wise Learns from the Fool- Unplugged

Hello, my friend, and welcome to Wisdom-Trek! I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your Guide to Wisdom and Creating a Living Legacy. Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 725 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.

Today’s quote is from Keshavan Nair, and it is, “With courage, you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.”

Courage Is the Foundation


Courage is the very basis for a life well lived. Courage is the opposite of selfishness because you are willing to put what is right ahead of what you desire. Integrity is built on that foundation of courage because it provides you with the strength to always do what is right instead of what is convenient. Courage provides strength to love others, even if they are unlovable.

Courage provides the wisdom to be humble when you would be prone to swell up with pride. Courage allows you to risk the comfortable, for the uncomfortable. Courage requires faith that if we do what is right at all times that God will provide us with the strength needed when our strength begins to fail. As the Apostle Paul encouraged us in Corinthians 16:13-14, “Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong.  And do everything with love.”


That’s a wrap for today’s Wisdom Unplugged quote. If you would like free access to my database of over 10,000 inspirational quotes, the link is available on the main page of Wisdom-Trek.com. As you enjoy these nuggets of wisdom, encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
